\015 I recently took my car to the shop. As my previous post. the problem my car is having, when im driving the car i hear a very loud noise. My engine light kept blinking. I was told it was my coils. I already replaced all six coils. after the car was taken for a test drive. When i came to a complete stop the car was full of smoke as soon as I popped the hood. One coil was burnt to a crisp. The mechanic told me i need it New Modules, i added those the problem still insited after that the car wouldn't turn on. My mechanic change the fuse box. The car has been running. But i still hear that "Loud noise".. Now the mechanic says its my catalyt converter and my Oxygen sensor. we replaced that as well. The car was ruuning for half an hour. When he test drove it. It died on him... PLease Help\015
Check the alternator out put voltage.It should be between 13.65 to 14.25 volts at the battery with the engine running.If the voltage regulator has gone out,it may be charging wide open,somewhere about 18 to 22 volts.This would burn up a lot of things.Check the battery to make sure the battery is not shorted out.Check the max fuses to see if they are blown now that the car has died.Try a code reader also to see what codes are stored in the computer.This might pin point the problem also.If the catylic is stopped up,the engine would most likely run hot.I am assuming the voltage out put,of the alternator is maxed out,and burning up everything,fuses and all.This can burn up the computer also.The electrical system is designed to handle about 15.50,to 16.5 volts max,anything else will burn out some things.I hope this is helpful,and if so,please let us know,thank you.
